Bolton-QPR Betting Preview: Expect goals and both sides to cancel each other out

Two teams with automatic promotion in mind clash on Saturday lunch time and our tipster is backing both of them to find the net
Bolton Wanderers host QPR this weekend, with a top two finish a realistic possibility for both sides.

Whereas QPR were relegated from the Premier League last season, Bolton made a late charge towards the play-offs, but finished agonisingly short of the top six by goal difference.

The Trotters were certainly the form team in the final part of the season. However, this campaign hasn’t started so well for Dougie Freedman’s side, with their only victory coming away in the League Cup against Shrewsbury.

Freedman’s men kicked off their campaign with a 1-1 draw away at Lancashire rivals Burnley, which was followed by a home draw with Reading before Nottingham Forest taught them a lesson last week, beating them 3-0. BetVictor price them as 13/8 (2.63) to claim their first three points of the season.

QPR come into this match unbeaten so far this season. Despite being tipped to struggle, Harry Redknapp’s side have started well, beating Sheffield Wednesday, Exeter and Ipswich Town. Their only slip up came away at Huddersfield Town, where they drew 1-1. BetVictor price them at a long 9/5 (2.80) to take all three points. The same firm price the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

Despite not winning a match in the league this season, Bolton haven’t struggled to find the net. With QPR scoring in every game this season, the both teams to score bet at 3/4 (1.75) with BetVictor looks like a fantastic price. This would have paid out in three of Bolton’s four matches so far this season.

For those looking for more value, backing the correct score to end 1-1 is a tasty 6/1 (7.00) with BetVictor. This result has paid out in two of Bolton’s three league games already this season, and with QPR’s only away match this season finishing 1-1, it’s certainly worth investing in.
